In Episode 39, Emmeline is in for a big surprise at the quilt show.

And here we are, at the end of the novel! Can you believe it? The first episode of Friendship Album, 1933, aired on June 6th of 2018. Now, eleven months later, we close the book. I hope you’ve enjoyed it!

Plans are in the works to continue with the podcast after a short hiatus and to eventually have a sequel to Friendship Album, 1933. We haven’t set firm dates yet, but I’ll let you know when I have it all figured out!

In the meantime, thanks for listening! If you’ve enjoyed the podcast, I hope you’ll consider telling your friends as well as leaving a 5-star rating and a nice review on iTunes. I’ve had so much fun writing and reading this novel, and I’m happy that you’ve joined me as we’ve followed the adventures of our girls in Milton Falls! See you soon, I hope!


  1. What a great story. I really enjoyed it immensely. I grew up in a home filled with ‘30’s quilts and a quilting mom, grandmother and aunt. I am an avid quilter which is no wonder. My grandmother had me sewing on her treadle machine when I was only 4 years old.

  2. It is bittersweet to finish up with the last episode of your “Friendship Album”! Wonderful getting to know the different ladies of the quilting group. I have to say that I have renewed appreciation of my friends in my small group. I hope I never take the for granted because they are such a strong support group…quilting and real life!

    Thank you for sharing your talents with us. I am going to miss listening about my new friends. Wishing you luck with your further endevours!

  3. I recently visited the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, CO, where I picked up info on the Quilt Fiction podcast. I enjoyed listening to you read your novel, Friendship Album, 1933, and getting to know and love your characters as I sewed along with them. It was sad to see them go!

  4. Hi Frances, I’ve so enjoyed your Friendship Album, 1933 & could just picture myself as a member of the Quilting Bee in Milton Falls. I really look forward to more from you in the future. It’s been a pleasure to listen to you read each & every chapter & episode. Thank you!!!

  5. Your stories are delightful and so entertaining. I would like for the story to go on but I guess sometimes things come to an end. It started to feel like I knew the characters. Thank you so much, Linda

  6. Enjoyed, enjoyed, enjoyed. Not only was the story interesting but the facts that you posted along with each episode to give us readers more background and history of the time added to the entire book. I listened to it while doing my walks indoor during the winter – took an MP3 player along on a trip to Scotland – finished listening while visiting and helping with grandkids this week. The only issue was “I wanted to hear the whole story NOW” (sounds like the grandkids throwing a tantrum over their i pods). Thanks so much, I am looking forward to more in the future.

  7. I’m very much looking forward to future chapters! Thank-you
